Featured Linguist!

Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain. Fascinated by the strange sounds, I tried to get to know some more languages, the only opportunity being TV courses of English and French -- there was no foreign language education for pre-teen school children in Germany yet in those days.

Book Information

   

Title: Annual Review of South Asian Languages and Linguistics
Subtitle: 2010
URL: http://www.degruyter.de/cont/fb/var/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110254839-1
Series Title: Trends in Linguistics. Studies and Monographs [TiLSM] 238
Description:

Please note: This is a new version of a previously announced text.

South Asia is home to a large number of languages and dialects. Although
linguists working on this region have made significant contributions to our
understanding of language, society, and language in society on a global
scale, there is as yet no recognized international forum for the exchange
of ideas amongst linguists working on South Asia.

"The Annual Review of South Asian Languages and Linguistics" is designed to
be just that forum. It brings together empirical and theoretical research
and serves as a testing ground for the articulation of new ideas and
approaches which may be grounded in a study of South Asian languages but
which have universal applicability.

Each volume will have three major sections:
I. Invited contributions consisting of state-of-the-art essays on research
in South Asian languages.
II. Refereed open submissions focusing on relevant issues and providing
various viewpoints.
III. Reports from around the world, book reviews and abstracts of doctoral
theses.
